Double chocolate chip cookies

Holy shit, you guys. Apparently I'm the most forgetful moron on the planet... Earlier, I was reading Shannon's post about going to the supermarket in search of a particular type of double chocolate chip cookies, and I wrote a comment that was all "I know it won't be exactly what you're looking for, but you can try my recipe here", and then went on an expedition into the depths of my bloggy archives searching for the link.

And you know what? IT WASN'T THERE. I was all "WTF??" about it, because I *knew* I'd taken the photos. So I checked my photos, and sure enough, they were there. I'd taken them at the start of February. TWO THOUSAND AND TEN. Before I moved house. Before Sara arrived in Australia. When I'd had my SLR for about a month. Yeah. How's THAT for organised?! :S

Anyforgetfulloser, I'm posting it now instead. You're welcome. Here's what you'll need:

Start by putting 1 cup of brown sugar into a mixing bowl (incidentally, that's my Le Creuset mixing bowl which fell off the draining rack this time last week and smashed all over the floor. It took a chunk of the tile with it. We're SO not getting our security deposit back *sigh*):

Then add two eggs:

And 2/3 cup of vegetable oil:

Mix it all together with a fork...

Until... (I apologise if this photo makes you feel motion sick. It does it to me a little as well...)

Smooth!

Meanwhile, dump 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder into a sifter:

Add 1 cup of self raising flour:

And 1 cup of plain flour:

Then sift it all in on top of the egg/sugar/oil goop:

Once it's all sifted in, add 2/3 cup dark chocolate bits and 2/3 cup white chocolate bits:

Mmmmmm, chocolate...

Ahem. Mix the chocolates through gently:

Then knead to form a light dough. I've found that punching it does much the same as kneading and is the better option if you've had a bad week at work. Apparently I'd been having a bad week in February 2010...:

Grab chunks of dough (I'm sorry, I know that looks really disgusting. You can use a spoon if you want?):

And roll them into balls:

Bake at 180 degrees C for 12 minutes:

Leave them to cool on the tray for five minutes, then put them on a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy! (I doubled it from the original recipe. It should make 32 cookies. Mine usually makes 30 because I have no self control and eat chunks of the dough...)

Off to trawl through my photos and make sure I haven't forgotten anything else,
